When discussing what makes a horror villain iconic, many factors are taken into consideration. While quantity doesn’t always equal quality, there’s no denying that body count is an important consideration when ranking our favorite slashers and psychos. Our friends at WhatCulture have just released a video that counts down the 10 horror villains with the highest numbers of confirmed kills!
You might be surprised at how some well-known slashers measure up to their peers, and I guarantee you, at least a few of the entries will shock you (I wouldn’t have guessed #2 in a million years). Give the video a spin at the top of the article. If you can’t stream (or simply want to cut to the chase) you can jump down to the list of killers and their stats below.
